This rare corked top blue glass bottle is hand decorated by myself, with a polymer clay representation of the Bryn Celli Ddu burial chamber on Anglesey (Wales), the isle of the druids. It contains dried flowers and plants collected from Bryn Celli Ddu it's self. I have also added tiny shards of quartz as it is heavily associated with these tombs and is even thought to represent the stars in the night's sky especially if you imagine the stone scattered on the floor and illuminated by fire.
I have adorned the exterior of the bottle with Swarovski crystals and painted the clay with metallic acrylics to bring the piece to life. I have created a fairly accurate copy of the stones including the rock art found on an upright stone standing outside the rear of the tomb, in a sense the bottle is the tomb with the stones surrounding it. The cork is decorated with a foil/sequin sun decoration as the site is associated with the summer solstice. The Bottle measures 6cm by 4cm (2.5 inches by 1.75 inches)
INSIDE THE POT - You will find tiny pieces of quartz,dried oak leaf sacred to the druids and an assortment of dried wild flowers collected from the mound it's self.
Bryn Celli Ddu or "the mound in the dark grove" translated to English, is an exceptionally important tomb associated with the druids, it was originally a henge monument and even has it's origins in the mesolithic. Bryn Celli Ddu aligned with the rising sun of the summer solstice during which the light of the sun enters the tomb, this alignment is only found at a select few sites including Stonehenge. I am very lucky to have such an amazing site right on my door step!
This pot is one of a kind and I will not be able to recreate this the same way again especially as this is the only blue bottle I have been able to get my hands on. With the solstice so near it would make a great altar piece. keepsake or gift. Get your own little piece of Wales in a bottle!
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think
Keep an eye on my shop as I will be creating other Essence bottles based on the ancient sites of Anglesey!
